I’m sorry my blogger friends…

...I’ve not really been up to blogging this week. I’ve had things going on at work yanking me here and there…and then some personal things that came up needing my attention. And this heat-it’s not helping. It’s been hot as blazin here in the Midwest and it’s stealing much of my energy. And the pep in my step-the heat stole that too! Oh well…this too shall pass.

So me and the dog, we’ve been keeping a low profile. Reading blogs and responding here and there. We’ve also started reading yet another book (Eat, Love, Pray by ??). It’s really good (so far) and the movie comes out next Friday starring Julia Roberts. I’m really looking forward to seeing the movie and seeing how close they keep the two. While reading I can sometimes hear Julia’s voice as the narrator. I’ve also been reading a “Sherlock Holmes” type book…it’s about Sherlock Holmes through Mary Russell’s eyes. Also on the reading table are “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin and a Marathon book by Hal Higdon. Oh, and I’ve read a couple chapters of a Debbie MacComber book. Hmmm…I’m seeing a pattern here. I think.

So anyhow, tomorrow I have a follow up mammogram on the right side. Evidently they saw something that needs a closer look. They say that us women have many “bumps” “masses” “dense areas” that are actually “nothing” but there’s always that chance it could be something. And although I’m not looking forward to this visit I would rather find out “wassup” rather than sit here going “hmmmm”. Besides, knowledge is power right? Or does that not apply in this case?

Chao…have a great night/Friday…I’ll try and write a real post over the weekend.


  1. I feel you on the heat. I think I actually melted a little bit when I was outside today.

    Also, I *LOVE* Eat, Pray, Love. It's one of my favorite books. The best thing about it is that each time you read it allows you to get something new out of it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)

  2. Missed you, glad you are ok. smile.

  3. I'm looking forward to that movie too! I hope everything is okay - please let us know!

  4. i love that book. That is one of the movies I am thinking about actually paying to see.

  5. Good luck today on the 'gram. I had a call-back once and it turned out to be nothing, but it sure was frightening to get that letter. Take a deep breath and get it over with.

    Someday, I'm going to get back into reading. With my job search--and addiction to the blogosphere--just not enough time.

    Come back and let us know whassup.

  6. I hope you're ok as well! I saw the preview for that movie and am looking forward to it too!
